Harvest 2017

The summer and autumn were rather dry, which meant a healthy harvest. Yields were lower than normal, which together with average temperatures just below historical highs, resulted in earlier ripening. The 2017 wines generally are concentrated, with a fresh style, good acidity, and excellent fruit and floral expression.
